Executive Education

Marc Bowles works at the intersection of leadership, conversations and education. He spends every day thinking about how we can use conversations to create leaders that are more engaging, people centered and inspiring. As a connector of people and conversations first, Bowles is driven to explore globally innovative approaches connecting people and organizations to the gaps in leadership and who we need to BE to inspire ourselves and those around us. He is driven to inspire, invest and celebrate the capacity we each have to make a difference locally and globally through an insatiable belief that conversations change the world.




Bowles has more than 30 years of experience in coaching and leadership development at the corporate, international level in business and sport. Outside of Royal Roads, he coaches mid-career and leadership teams around the globe in the fields of technology, oil & gas, education, health care, accounting, military, construction and sport. This passion has taken him to New Zealand, Australia, Kuala Lumpur, Saint Petersburg, United Emirates and most recently, Beijing and Saudi Arabia.
